We had about 12 inches of snow or more and five foot snow drifts. The super cold air is coming down from Canada now. ( I don't know how you take that cold, cold air Lene! ) Wind chill to be -23 in the morning.
We bellied out our Arctic Cat today, so we started up the old backhoe and made one trip down the drive and back. The steering on the backhoe is messed up now, so we put it back in the out building and used the Arctic Cat to clean up the mess. That took a while, as our driveway is a quarter of a mile long.
I decided my husband had been out there long enough, so I grabbed a snow shovel and started in on a couple of five foot drifts. Then I carried in some fire wood. That finally got me. I have taken my Tramadol and my Soma and feel better now. I know I shouldn't do these kind of things, but it was a bit of an emergency.
Hope everyone is safe and warm. This was a big, bad blizzard and affected a lot of people.
Full Question: I wake up every morning with a soreness in the back of my neck and a hang-over like headache which makes me nauseous. I do not drink. I have had previous neck discectomy and fusion at three levels. I suffer from chronic muscle tightness in neck and shoulders. The headache lasts all day. Any suggestions? Jonathan.

I suspect you don't sleep well, and I would recommend you talk to your physician about a medication called tizanidine (Zanaflex), which reduces muscle spasm and helps sleep.

Chest pain is one of the scariest symptoms a person can have because the first thing we usually think of is a heart attack. Of course, any new chest pain should be considered a medical emergency and checked out right away. But once a heart problem has been ruled out, one of the possibilities your doctor may consider is costochondritis. Costochondritis ((kos-toe-KHON-dri-tis) is an inflammation of the cartilage that connects a rib to the breastbone (sternum). It is one of the most common cause of musculoskeletal chest pain. Symptoms: The two main symptoms of costochondritis are pain and tenderness in the chest wall, specifically where the ribs attach to the breastbone.
Pain – The pain of costochondritis is usually described as sharp and/or stabbing, but may also be dull, burning or gnawing. Often the pain gets worse when coughing or taking a deep breath. There may also be some difficulty breathing. The location of the pain can be on either...
